ALSA seems to be set up properly; my soundcard (DMX6Fire) is well 
supported for a long time now, and everthing works for me as expected.

But I can't get an ALSA entry in winecfg (and so there is no MIDI); 
sound in wine works via pulseaudio, and if I disable pa, the only sound 
driver available in wine is jack.
